Some of my favorites:

Four in the Morning by Christi Goddard (young adult fantasy)

The Kindness of Stranger by Katrina Kittle (literary fiction, women's fiction, contemporary fiction, a book that will make you cry)

Into You by Riley J Ford (young adult paranormal)

Carpe DiEmily by Riley J Ford (comedy, chick lit, hilarious, fun)

Promise Not to Tell by Jennifer McMahon (paranormal mystery)

What are some of your favorites?

Of the things I read that were published this year, I'd have to say my favorite was 600 Hours of Edward by Craig Lancaster. I won a proof copy through Goodreads so it wasnt the prettiest but I really enjoyed it and found it very interesting.

Overall, the book that meant the most to me this year was Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne. My daughter had open heart surgery in April and we spent about a week in the ICU recovering. I spent many hours sitting by her side reading to her. We were in a double ICU with a baby boy who was also a heart baby and he would also calm down as soon as I started to read so I often kept reading even after Izzy fell asleep if he was still awake After we finished Winnie, I tried several other books but my little girl apprently didnt like them--she would fuss at me until I started Winnie again so we just read it in a loop When your baby (she was seven months old) is filled with tubes and wires and you are helpless to comfort them, the little things you can do become so very important. Reading to her was something I could always do in those early days when she couldnt be moved.

I'm a YA reader so I'd have to say my favorite 2012 book would have to be Pandemonium - the 2nd book in the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver.

Some of my favorites are YA but I have to admit I don't read new ones very often anymore. I added some to my goodreads list that I have wanted to read and never had a chance to! Finally finished the Ruby in the Smoke quartet a while back. I'm going to try to read the last two in The Giver quartet this year

I've been stuck on the Wheel of Time series for years, now. I was very impressed with how well Sanderson took over the last books. The final book would have been my favorite of 2012 if it had come out on it's original release date Since it didn't, favorite would have to fall to Under the Dome by Stephen King.
